    Do you know what your ECU ID is? What version of the tune did you install?

    So, what happens if I forgot my password for VF Tuner? I used to just use legacy Flash Manager to flash, and have not really touched VFTuner until recently.

    When I tried to install VFTuner on one of my other laptops, I got the error that this master key had reach registration limit. I thought the purpose of the master key and registered email is to get away from being locked down to one computer.

    I have a couple laptops, one personal ultra book (main tuning laptop), a desktop replacement for editing, and two tough books which I plan on using for remote tuning and data logging,

    Worse case you will get locked out, if that happens contact ovtune help desk they will help you.

    The new update is out, but the comparison feature is still not really usable in the UI. Will this be fixed @OVTune ?

    Looks like the new big version is not out yet.. oops!

    Working on that
    I'd really like to go this route, but my dealership service dept. told me it would void the warranty.
    Any workarounds?

    Other dealers have told folks the exact opposite.


    In my personal view, the tune is better for the hardware long-term. Smoother, more consistent operation and no more pings in hot weather.

    Basically anything you do to your truck can void the warranty. I wouldn’t worry about it. Personally I feel way more confident in the tune than I did the OEM calibration
